Hand Heaven: The Trick to Smooth Silky Winter Hands

For years when winter skin debuted its increasingly painful, red, poison-ivy like patches on the inner third of my hands, I simply amassed tubes of various lotions in my over-sized bag and layered the lotions until my computer screen was greasy and my apples tasted like Shea butter. Still no matter how much I layered, the patchy roughness stayed. I was making one major mistake. Heaping gobs of lotions, butters and balms on top of already damaged skin doesn't actually take away the nasty elementary school teacher hands. Exfoliation, dears. Not just any exfoliation - organic super fruit exfoliation. For flawless friendly fingers, especially in winter, I've found two musts:

1) Noah's Naturals Age Defying Brazilian Body Polish with Acai Berry. Simply replace your hand soap with this hard working extract packed and plant oil plumped polish and voila - sixteen year old hands.

2) Dr. Obagi's ZO Skin Health Daily Hand Repair SPF 20. Who doesn't want to protect their hands from the sun's harmful rays? With this luxe lovely lotion your newly buffed hands will be soaking up saturation and shielded from the sun. Love.
